india 's BEST (not Indian Idol coz some have been confused in this two)

Zee TV?s planned to reveal India?s Best - Cinestar Ki Khoj, a talent hunt contest, which is now in its final rounds. India?s Best - Cinestar Ki Khoj was started from July 2 at 9 pm every Friday- Saturday exclusively on Zee TV.

The Zee Televisions India's Best- Cine Star Ki Khoj auditions was to be held at the Kalka Public School in Delhi on 7th June but as there was overwhelming response and the organizing committee had to call the police to control the crowd so after that Zee changed the venue and dates for the auditions. And hence auditions were held at Mittal Farms, Annuvarth Marg, between Ahimsa Sthal and Andheria Modh, Mehrauli Gurgaon Road, New Delhi, from 8 to 9 June, from 9 am to 6 pm. There were more than 20,000 boys and girls patiently awaiting their ?Big Break?.

In fact more than 8,00,000 entries have been received for the Big Break. Zee will showcase the various rounds of auditions in various cities including behind-the-scenes recording from July 2. These special episodes are directed by Gajendra Singh (Anatkashari, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa). The hopeful star aspirants from all over of the country are in the city going through the paces of acting, emoting and the works under the guidance of Kishore Namit Kapoor.

The two selected (a male and a female) will feature in a 20-crore film alongside Sunny Deol, Salman Khan and Preity Zinta. ?Besides the two India?s Best, the rest will be absorbed in supporting roles in the film projects and TV serials. India?s Best - Cinestar Ki Khoj, (the biggest acting contest ever held in the country, as the channel claims) consisted of walk-in auditions without any fees.

Judges from Bollywood and the small screen world selected 80 candidates from 20 cities from which 32 were short listed for the finals. These 32 contestants were divided into 2 groups, that is 16 contestants in Group A and another 16 contestants in Group B. Group A will perform on each Friday and Group B will be performing on Saturday. 2 contestants (1 girl & 1 boy) will be eliminated from each group on Friday and Saturday.

At beginning the judges called as Big Brothers (Satish Kaushik, Mahesh Manjhrekar, and Ken Ghosh) were doing the judgment and with these judges we can see personality like Saimak Davar (Choreographer), Vikram Phadnish (Dress Disgner), Ganesh Acharya (Choreographer), whoever have done the choreography for the contestants on the day that person too judges them but now the votes of audience matters for the contestants. Whoever?s votes will be very low that will be eliminated from the group and I think that it was the better way to judge, as there will be no partiality and neither the contestant can blame judge for the judgment.

When the contestant Nazia Khan was out from the group, that was according to the judges, mother of Nazia Khan was behind the stage and did created scene and was shouting and blaming the judges that the judgment was wrong and like that but now its ok. In fact, the audiences are those who go to buy the ticket and watch the movie and who will like the actor/ actress. So, the votes of audience are really good way to judge the contestant?s performance.

From Monday to Thursday on Zee TV at 10:00 pm they show the contestants preparing for their next show as Bollywood Dreams. On Monday the winner contestants of the groups gives farewell party to those contestants who is eliminated from the Group A & B.

On Tuesday the contestants have talk with the personality like Dharmendra, Shekhar Suman, Sajid Khan. The contestants enjoyed their time with other personalities except Mr. Sajid Khan, who were horrible. He doesn?t know how to speak properly or behave properly. Everyone gets scared when he starts asking questions, just stupid questions he asks.

And on Wednesday & Thursday the contestants are practiced for dances and acting which they are going to perform on the stage in front of the audiences and judges on Friday & Saturday. At the beginning of their show the dances was choreographed for them by Shaimak Davar, for the next show Ganesh Acharya did the job and for this week?s Friday & Saturday Mr. Ahmed Khan (Choreographer, Director) did choreographed for them.

And I must say that in the 32 groups of contestants the best dancer is Abhishek Awasthi, he is a gr8 dancer as well as a good actor also. The judges, choreographer, everyone appreciated his dancing and even the other participants are scared to dance with him, coz while dancing with him Abhishek catches the frame and other remains like unnoticed. The dance step given by Mr. Ahmed Khan was too tuff that only Abhishek did in once and was appreciated by the praising word of Ahmed Khan. But rest was also good in their dancing.

As the 32 contestants in Group A & B were divided in 16/16 (8 girls + 8 boys) in each group. But now the final show has arrived and in Group A - Mohit Chadda & Aditi Sharma is there and in Group B - Sarwar Ahuja & Shraddha Arya is left. And now these 4 contestants have been merged in one. And on the last week Friday & Saturday these 4 contestants performed their best.

They did Romantic Scenes, Comedy, Action Scenes as well. They did dances as well as Qawwalis. And on these base of their performance the audiences have to vote. And now the winner will be announced on this coming Friday & Saturday. And the remaining two will get supporting role and the winner will be doing the lead role.

They did meet with Big B. Mr. Amitabh Bacchhan and he wished these participants his best wishes. I think all might be eager to know who will be the winner and hope the best wins. It was really very sad for them who ever couldn?t make it but only 2 will be the winner so others have to be out, so that?s the rule, but they got circle of friends for whom their emotions comes out in their eyes when the friend is eliminated from the group.

But no need to be dishearten coz from out of 19,000 people they came in 32 and that?s the big thing and beside that they got to know lots of people of the film industry and they got chance to perform on stage in front of those big brothers (Satish Kaushik, Mahesh Manjhrekar, and Ken Ghosh) and who knows when the luck will knock on their door and which judge might want any one of those contestants out of 32 to take in their movies.

And there is one good news to those people who were in favour of those contestants who couldn't make it. This Friday & Saturday (3rd & 4th December 2004), all the 32 participants will be called up and out of these all, some will get award on individual category as per they deserve and i think all this participants are excited to know this and they were happy and excited for this event and I am too waiting eagerly to watch this final round.

This programme, Zee Televisions India's Best - Cine Star Ki Khoj is the place where one can fulfill their dream. And really this programme is of a standard and the host Roshan Abbas & Mallaika Arora Khan has done a great job. And the title song & lyrics of this programme is really beautiful, it goes like this:

Khwabon ki dastak hai sun zara
Khusiyon ki aahat hai sun zara
Manzil ka ishara hoga na dobara
Manzil ka ishara hoga na dobaraaaaa
We are India?s Best

There are no free goodies in Bollywood for anyone: Sarwar Ahuja

'Zee Cine Stars Ki Khoj' winner Sarwar Ahuja is excited about his next film, inspite of everything that went wrong with his very first release, 'Khanna & Iyer'.

Q: So, how is the shooting for 'Hum Fir Milen Na Milen' going on?
A: The shooting is almost complete for this film and only one item song is left to be picturised.

Q: I have heard you were signing autographs for one hour for your female fans?
A: (Laughs) Yeah you heard it right. It was all fun shooting for this movie. We shot the film in Shimla and you know what a beautiful place it is. My heroine is a new comer called Khushi Govil who is the granddaughter of Tabassum.

Q: How did you bag this film?
A: I was shooting for 'Khanna& Iyer' when the producer called me up for a meeting. They narrated me the story and I liked it. Though it's their first movie but they are very enthusiastic.

Q: Till what extent do you think, you were benefited from Zee Cinestars Ki Khoj?
A: Frankly speaking, had this show of Zee wasn't there, I wouldn't have been able to come to Mumbai. It helped me to ignite my passion. I remember, I had just completed my MBA and had nothing left in my life to complete.

I mean my education was over and it was the time to fulfill my dream of becoming a film star. I was totally new to Bollywood and this show helped me to know the industry. As you know, here there are more people who just talk and less who actually work.

Q: I heard you have started a restaurant recently. Did you start it from your own earnings?
A: No, actually it was started by one of my family friends who is very close and like a brother to me. The restaurant is called 'Delhi Delights'. I have no investments in this business nor do I have any financial interests.

Q: Are you disappointed by the performance of your debut film?
A: See, I feel every start has its own troubles. What is important for me is I got a good break and my film was released in every multiplex in the country and the whole country watched it.

I always look at things positively and would rather say that nobody knows whether a film is a hit or a flop before its release. All the actors including me worked hard and sincerely for the film and the industry appreciated my performance and look I am getting offers now.

Q: It seems, impressed by your performance Mr. Ghai rewarded you with a three-film contract?
A: Yes, you are right.

Q: Considering the delay in your debut film's release, did you feel anytime that the project (Khanna & Iyer) isn't being taken seriously by the producer or the channel?
A: Do you think I am like Hrithik Roshan or Akshay Kumar who had to worry about the film? In fact I was a newcomer who was ignorant about the functions of the film industry.

For me, the big names like Zee and Mukta Arts associated with my film were more important rather than thinking about the fate of the film. I knew I was going to get a good start sooner or later. So no regrets for whatever delay happened.

Q: You won the contest in Dec. 2004 and your film got released in 2007. What were you doing all this time?
A: Hey, I have completed three films during this period. Actually, according to the contract with Zee none of my films could release before 'Khanna & Iyer'. My next release is 'Hum Fir Milen Na Milen' in June 2007 and another film with film maker Basu Chatterjee is also ready.

Q: So, Zee's responsibility towards you is over now or are you still bound by any contract?
A: Yes, I am free from the contract with Zee now and free to work with any producer.

Q: Do you think these types of shows really help the contestants?
A: Well, these types of shows are like a window which give you an opportunity to exploit your talent, otherwise how come any outsider would know how to come here and whom to approach. I hardly knew anything about the film business.

Though I was a double MBA, I was totally ignorant. So, these shows help the aspirants to know the cut throat competition that exists here and make them realise whether they will be able to achieve their dreams or not. If not they can return home safely at least and continue with their old profession.

Q: You think winners escape the struggle that the others are made to go through?
A: It's nothing like that dear. Here, there is struggle at every level. For me it was first struggle to complete my film, then I faced the struggle of its release and after that I am struggling to get more films.

Even an actor like Abhishek Bachchan has to struggle to give his best performance in films. Don't ever think there are free goodies for anybody.

Q: How many films are there in you hands now?
A: I have completed two films and have signed two new projects. These new films are being made by new producers from Delhi. One of them will be directed by Vinay Mudgal who was with Rajshree for 15 years.

Q: How are you promoting yourself? Any god father, any secretary or PRO?
A: I don't have any godfather but I have a secretary who also handles business for Abhay Deol and Soha Ali Khan. His name is Furkan Qureshi.

Q: Are you in touch with any of your co-contestants like Sharad Malhotra, Divyanka Tripathy or Yuvika Chaudhry?
A: (Feels delighted) Yes we meet sometimes and whenever it is possible we party together. It feels very nice to see them because at one point we all were together. I feel very happy for them for whatever success they have got and are popular too. - Amit Narnoli
